I can't decide to start with the forum end of my project or the ReviewPost end first. I know that I can integrate RP with an existing forum and then have RP use the forum's login info.

But if I did the reverse -- if I started with ReviewPost, and later found the need to integrate with a forum (e.g add the forum) would this be the correct workflow:
1. backup reviewpost and remove reviewpost.
2. create the forum.
3. integrate reviewpost.
4. restore reviewpost.

Would the reviewpost user login information that I had "backfit" to the new forum installation? E.g Would my reviewpost users be able login to the forum with their reviewpost login information?

[And thanks so much for taking the time to answer all of my pre-sales questions. It really says a lot about you guys].

Thanks.

You could not really do that because the users would not exist in the forum and therefore not login. If you wish to integrate with a forum you want to install the forum first.
